Berlin, Nov. 5, 2015 – The technology and growth investor consortium consisting of Santa and BTH, acquires a stake in Multirotor and will become a financially strong partner in developing the business side in the future. The new shareholders of Multirotor have already made several investments in the technology sector in the past.

Multirotor is the global market leader in the field of professional, unmanned, remote-controlled micro drones in the fields of film, industry and surveying . Multirotor serves customers such as Trimble, the German Armed Forces, police, ZDF, Acciona, etc.

The investor consortium is investing in B2B business models and especially where established industrial sectors experience a fundamental change through new technologies. We observe this increasingly in the area of commercial flying robots and drones that herald the next era of automation in various industries. “Drones are often still a vision of the future in the public‘s perception. PR-suitable presentations by major trading and logistics companies contribute to shaping this image. Already today, they offer significant cost and time savings for many industrial fields of application. Examples include the surveying industry, agriculture, plant inspection as well as building and property protection. There are presently highly profitable business models already in place here, which we think is very exciting.“ says Dr Frank Nikolaus, Managing Partner at Santa.

It is Multirotor‘s long-term goal to develop its leading position in the market with its new strategic partners, and to cover new segments and areas of application through technological innovation. “The networking activities implemented by the new partners are excellent, especially in the technology sector, both in Europe as well as in other growth markets such as the UAE and the USA. What‘s more, the new partners perfectly complement our engineering expertise by contributing their knowledge from other technology companies, especially when it comes to scaling of the business. “We did not initially expect this,“ says Oliver Knittel, managing director of Multirotor. Joern-Carlos Kuntze, Managing Partner of BTH, adds: “Multirotor is a true hidden champion made-in-Germany. Away from the hype surrounding the logistics visions of major trading companies, they managed to establish themselves as a market leader in highly profitable fields of application, such as surveying and flight film. The global cooperation with the market leader Trimble reflects the enormous potential of this young company. We look forward to a cooperative future together.“
